It's here! :D
Man, that dude is heavy, too. :O I managed to get put the legs on it and get is set up in its new home. As I was putting it together, it occured to me that the name "Grizzly" might indicate the sight of my mangled remains after I use this thing. I hope that's not the case!
My first impression of it is that Grizzly lathes are quite solid. However, their packaging SUCKS! The box was beat to hell and back, though not torn open, miraculously. The styrofoam that's supposed to hold everything in place in the box was shredded. There was minor damage to the swivel pin, but I've already called for a replacement. Hopefully they know that their packaging sucks and they won't give me any hassle. I'll keep you posted!
Johnv51, did you get yours yet? How'd it make the trip?
